Hockey+My Little Pony=Awesome

At the end of the last hockey season, a new, super awesome tumblr was started by an artist named Ali Lawrence. My Little Blackhawk. The premise? A cross-over between My Little Pony and hockey players, specifically Chicago Blackhawks players. Along with guest appearances from other teams, including the Boston Bruins. The result is some pretty adorable art.

I mean, look at this. Tuukka Rask, Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara, and Gregory Campbell as ponies. Perfect. (Source: My Little Blackhawk)

Of course, seeing these immediately got my wheels turning on a possible cosplay based on them. The result? A Rask Pony costume. I couldn’t help myself.

The wig is by Arda Wigs, and the ears are by Yaya Han.

I made light green leggings out of cotton jersey and knitted Bruins “hockey socks” (even though Tuukka Rask, as a goalie, doesn’t wear those so they show, but I thought they added to the Bruins flavor).

For this picture, Mike told me to do “anime fingers.” I decided that went well with crazy face.

I’m not sure that Tuukka would approve, but I’d like to think he would! This is his serious face though. (Source: Bleacher Report)
